TEAM TROUBLE SURGES PAST THE KINGS

STOCKTON, CA- Explosive game by Team Trouble leads the team past the San Diego Kings 132-88.  

The teams breakout began in the second quarter and only took off, as the team put up 39-points alone in the quarter.

Team Trouble came into the game seeking revenge after taking a season ending loss to the Kings in the Far West Championships. Tasked with the tough challenge was new Team Trouble Head Coach Chris Curtis. 

The challenge that seemed to big conquer was smashed by Curtis sending a big statement in the Far West Division, as he opened up his ABA coaching career with a big win over a Far West power house.

Team Trouble now looks ahead to tonight, as they take on the Contra Costa County Delta Stars who they have beat twice this season. While the San Diego Kings continue their road trip up to the bay to play a tough San Francisco City Cat team who has yet to lose.
